Without a need to learn a profession, he chiefly dabbled in literature and partying.

LibriVox recording of Can Such Things Be?, by Ambrose Bierce. Read by Roger Melin. 24 short stories in fairly typical Bierce fashion - ghostly, spooky, to be read (or listened to) in the dark, perhaps with a light crackling fire burning dimly in the background. Stories of ghosts, apparitions, and strange, inexplicable occurrences are prevalent in these tales, some of which occur on or near Civil War fields of battle, some in country cottages, and some within urban areas. Can Such Things Be?...

So this was the girl I had risked my life to find. This was the girl who was going to lead me to a...
